Vacation in 3 Days

I got in from the gym about an hour ago. I went to a different pilates class tonight with a new instructor. Almost all we did was work the back side. My buns were burnin'! I hope I can walk tomorrow. My plan is to make the aqua fit class tomorrow evening to get in one more workout before the hike-a-palooza next week.

My family is renting a Suburban and road tripping it to west Texas on Saturday. Snorkeling and McDonald observatory on Saturday. We'll climb a mountain one day and hike into a canyon another day. Somewhere in all of that we'll go to Carlsbad caverns. I'm super excited and anticipating losing 5 lbs easily. All of this is taking place in the desert, so it's liable to be hot! I can't wait!

Pray for me when you think about me. I'm dealing with some complex emotions having to do with really wanting to have kids. This time around has been so much better as far as my attitude, but I'm mostly just sad. Trying to trust God's timing is hard when we've already waited 4 years. My hope is that losing my excess weight will help things to work properly again. If nothing else, getting in shape is giving me something to focus on and strive for.

111. Grace. God's patience with me when I'm a moron, and His promise to love me when I don't learn from my mistakes.
112. Catching up with sweet friends.
113. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
114. Impromptu lunch and heart to heart with my mom-in-law.
115. Dad's insanely bad jokes and quirky ideas, always good for a chuckle.


  1. 1. I love your new background.
    2. Carlsbad Caverns are AMAZING!
    3. I'm praying for you and Daniel. :)

  2. Thanks, Kim! Isn't the bike fun?! I thought it was a nice theme for summer and my new "fitness leaf."

    Carlsbad Caverns are completely amazing, I'm so excited for Daniel to see it.

    Thank you so much for the prayers... we'll take all we can get.
